I really enjoy a good storyline, but I've gotten to the point where I feel that there are so few groundbreaking ...
Kind of hard when every single possible story twist has already been played.
Maybe as far as plot twists go, yeah. It may even be true that, as far as stories in general go everything that could be told has been. But of these not every story that could be told well in a rpg has been. Like norse mythology is..well pretty damn old. Yet the only rpg I've played that has me right in the middle of that is valkyrie profile(Of course you get name dropping with mythology references all the time, but it ends up being just that-name dropping.). Being a valkyrie and guiding people at the end of their lives (and then taking their spirits..uh...dungeon crawling with me) is a pretty unique perspective. For another example so's playing a 1920's detective in the upcoming new Devil Summoner game.
Dumbass hero saving his weak and timid girlfriend from a madman who wants to become god, AGAIN..not so much.
